An electrical problem in the heart causes cardiac arrest. This electrical problem causes the heart to stop pumping blood around the body and to the brain.
A cardiac arrest causes the person to fall unconscious and stop breathing. Without any intervention, the person will die within minutes.
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency procedure that combines chest compressions often with artificial ventilation to manually preserve intact brain function until further measures are taken to restore spontaneous blood circulation and breathe in a person in cardiac arrest.
You should only perform CPR if the casualty is:
By performing chest compressions and rescue breaths, you are taking over the role of their heart and lungs, pumping blood and oxygen around their body. Performing chest compressions only (hands only) will still be of benefit until the emergency services arrive.
Remember, every second counts. Any delay can quickly reduce a person's chance of survival.
